Its been some time since I posted a photo - whatever I try this morning doesn't work?
Am I supposed to use this new feature Martin or is it the same as before? Photo I chose was under 300k too.

Seems to be working now!   :o

OK, a few notes:

1.   The new system is a completely different system  and not directly linked to Mayhem, an affiliate of Mayhem.

2.    You need to create a new Logon for it to work for you.

3.   I would suggest you use the same Mayhem Username, Email & Password as you do here on Mayhem forum.
3a.   - Photo hosting websites are a magnet for all sorts of nefarious types - I will have to manage the site manually.
3b.   - If you use your Mayhem Login name, you account won't get accidentally deleted, see below !

4.    www.modelboatmayhemimages.co.uk is an 'images' only server and has quite a number of option once you've created your own account. Auto uploading, Resizing, Albums, basic image editing, etc. everything we ever wanted!  :P

Legal Bit:

4.  I can see all photos uploaded.
5.   Any distasteful, sexual, paedophile, illegal photos or ANYTHING like that, the police will Immediately notified.

Could do with a tutorial how to resize photo's on this new feature Martin, as this has always been an ongoing problem seeing as most photo files these days are
Mega large -  4Mb in many cases?
Thanks

I think you are much better off resizing your photos before you submit them as uploading batches of large files over the internet can be time consuming and you can run into timeout problems.

There are lots of easy to use resizing programs available and documented on here.

Hi


Sorry Martin it is just not working for me, I have now tried seven times using my forum details, will call it a day for now and see  if I can get it to work next year.

Just a test to see if the old attachments way of posting pictures still works - if there is no picture under this then it doesn't!


Yes still Ok - so I assume that I can ignore all this new stuff?

Ok , Thanks Colin. I have always used Photoshop software to date for all my resizing, its just that I thought Martin
was introducing something rather more streamlined here .
Photoshop is ok for me but it demands a lot of menu clicking to get the end result.

Photoshop is doing it the hard way if you are just resizing. The other programs mentioned allow you to simply select a group of photos and reduce them to a specified size. It only takes seconds.

Posting an image using the "old attachment way" uses forum host server disk space which potentially either affects the forum (archiving required) or possible extra cost for more server storage.

The new system I believe has "unlimited" disk storage and was supposed to resize the image either in your browser before it's uploaded or once it's hit the server.

I know Martin was after a simple "one click" solution, easy to use that didn't create future storage problems and did away with "resizing" before uploading and also was under "Mayhem's" (his) control to stop the image ransom situation occurring again.

Maybe it needs a human (Martin) to approve - unlike the auto approval systems

When I click on the GREEN box it asks me to confirm that I want to view sexually explicit material...............?

Is that what everyone here is agreeing to ?

Sounds dodgy to me.............!

Nope, doesn't need anything from me, ( although I have requested that feature!).

... check your Spam folder?

I'll create a Hotmail account and test....

When the initial Photobucket problem emerged Martin did not seem at all concerned about this. Has this changed?

Not sure what you're ask, you can post a photo from anywhere, PC, laptop, phone.... Etch-a-sketch  if it has WiFi!

If we have albums in the new section ,can we post pictures directly from it to mayhem without having all the resizing rigmarole, as once in the album they are automatically resized arenít they?
